The proposal to require a password = foo entry in the conn string seems
to resolve all of these, without taking away useful capability. I don't
think that forbidding use of services altogether is a good thing.
So that seems to tilt the decision towards exposing the conninfo_parse
function. Joe, do you want to have a go at it, or shall I?
